Going into Canary Wharf the other day and got cut up by a dozy car driver... except I had my Helmetcam running.

Out of interest why the camera, is it for proof in an insurance claim.

Looks like it's essential to have a loud horn and a webcam! I've only got the loud horn and use it very frequently. Unfortunately it seems to have the effect of firstly warning the other vehicle of a dangerous situation and the provokes fierce retaliation as if I've done something really nasty. So I'm prepared for the retaliation, and as soon as conditions allow, accelerate away.
Strangely my last few similar situations have been with X5's, they probably induce a false sense of security - or maybe a real sense of security.
Situation normal, here in Wrexham, for cars to beat the traffic at roundabouts, by using the inside lane for turning right, so we have to always to be ready for another lap of the roundabout, but I wouldn't like to do that in London traffic!.
You could possibly use the webcam to get the road authority to arrange for right filtering trafic before the roundabout, and not allow it at the roundabout??? Although I suppose that only means an accident sooner.
1 of our children now lives in London Willesden/Kilburn, I'd love to visit her on my bike but frankly I'm pretty nervous of the traffic there, bus lanes, pedestrians, kamikazee cyclists, parked cars - I can cope with a few of these, but probably not all at once.
